What was once envisioned to be a private family vacation spot for the Chusuey family has grown to offer Filipino families and foreign tourists a relaxing place to stay for their beach adventures.
Dr. Henry Chusuey took a chance on what was an undeveloped plot of land in Boracay 25 years ago, to build what has now become the biggest homegrown resort group in the country today. Under his visionary leadership, Henann Group of Resorts, derived from a combination of Henry and his wife Anna Lissa’s names, has become synonymous with great accommodations, excellent service, and value for money.
Starting with what was then the 43-room Boracay Regency Beach Resort which later on expanded to become the 302-room Henann Regency Resort & Spa, the hospitality company acquired more properties to build its brand with the Henann Prime Beach Resort, Henann Park Resort, Henann Lagoon Resort, Henann Crystal Sands Resort, Henann Garden Resort, and Henann Palm Beach Resort located in Boracay; and the Henann Resort Alona Beach, and Henann Tawala Resort located in Bohol.
Aside from consistently receiving recognition from the Department of Tourism (DOT) and from booking sites such as Tripadvisor and Booking.com, along with positive reviews on its social media pages for its excellent facilities and world-class guest services, the Henann Group marked a major milestone in 2016 by being the first Filipino company to wrap their logo on local airline planes to promote the launch of their Bohol property, a brainchild of Karl Hendrik Chusuey, who is the company’s vice president.
Karl’s siblings also hold major roles in the company, with Alfonso Louis as president and Christina Ann as head of accounting. Together, they ensure that the hospitality group maintains their father’s vision of offering consistent high-quality guest experiences throughout all their properties.
Alfonso Louis says, “Henann has become synonymous with relaxing vacations in comfortable accommodations that highlight the best of its locality. We match the guest expectations that they will experience the same level of service with thoughtful amenities at any Henann hospitality property. This has led us to become the resort of choice for many Filipinos and foreign travelers through the years.”
Highlighting the best of PH
“As a homegrown brand, Henann offers the best of Filipino hospitality, inspired by the best global practices, with local influences that showcase Filipino pride. We offer our guests comfort and luxury for their memorable vacations at the best island destinations that the Philippines has to offer,” Karl Hendrik adds.
The Philippines is steadily recovering its tourism numbers, and the company is doing its part in supporting the continued growth of the local travel industry.
“My vision for Hennan Group of Resorts remains the same as when we started 25 years ago, amid all the challenges of building the property from scratch. We want to offer our guests the best of the Philippines, with unparalleled facilities and services that are designed with elegance and comfort in mind. The travel industry remains one of the major economic drivers of the country, and we at Henann Group of Resorts are committed to supporting our robust growth in hospitality by constantly innovating and developing our properties to become world-class destinations to create memorable experiences.”
The expansion of Henann Group of Resorts is set to cover other major tourist destinations in the country – Mactan Cebu, Coron, and Malcapuya Island in Palawan. For more information about the Henann Group of Resorts, visit www.henann.com.
